The 2016 National Conference on Philanthropic Planning (NCPP) Conference in Dallas taking place from October 17 to 19 features several notable speakers including NEO Of Counsel Brigit Kavanagh, who will be co-presenting a session on Why Donor Advised Funds and Supporting Organizations are a Gift Planner’s Friend with Wendy Chou, senior philanthropic advisor with The Oregon Community Foundation.
Donor advised funds and supporting organizations are increasingly familiar features in philanthropic planning, presenting an opportunity for gift planners to think creatively about ways these vehicles can be mutually beneficial to donors and charities alike. Using a series of case studies, the presenters will demonstrate how donors are using donor advised funds and supporting organizations to achieve their philanthropic objectives, dispel some myths about these giving vehicles, and discuss ways that gift planners can work with donors to secure gifts from donor advised funds and supporting organizations.
Over 40 speaker papers are offered at this year’s conference. A sample of last year’s papers are available for download on the NCPP site. On-site registration is available on Monday, October 17, starting at noon at the Sheraton Dallas.
